COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Stoke Bomber IPA is a daring formulation designed to excite the palate. First comes the aroma of biscuits and stone fruit, followed by flavours of caramel and marmalade blending with spice and hints of pepper. The zesty, lingering finish of this light bodied beer is a celebration of Wai-iti hops, only grown in New Zealand of course.

brnandersen (2447) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2014
Sample from 650 ml. bottle. Slightly hazy golden-amber colour with a small, off-white head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, fruits, light spices and hops. Taste is light sweet. Medium body, soft carbonation. Short, lightly bitter finish. Pleased by this APA, but not that impressed.

KeefOz (1112) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2014
Poured a hazy dark amber colour with a one-finger light tan foamy head that retained only a short while before diminishing to a collar of bubbles. Laced as curtains and spots. Carbonation low with large bubbles. Aroma very little - subtly of hops; like most pale ales but more subdued. Taste of semi-sweet fruit and earthy hops, again mild. Medium body. Slight bitter finish.

Stew41 (1796) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2013
Best of this mob’s offerings I think. Very competent beer but understandably doesn’t get me hot and sweaty. Light caramel hops and subtly hopped. Bitter dark fruits to finish but to be clear a deft touch rather than any show of power. A exercise in balance.
